Breast Massage Heavy Petal Expected 23rd February 7" from Nashville's heavy garage-rockers Breast Massage who feature Jeff The Brotherhood guitarist Jake Orrall and members of Diarrhea Planet and No Regrets.. "Breast Massage belies what folks think they *know* about Nashville and the music emanating from it. The shit is heavy, it pulls no punches and fails to come off like a bunch of know-nothing rubes blazed on dirt kush. The inteli-stoner rumble flows forth with heft of a legitimate conscience. Solid dudes making even more solid jams." Too Pure 7" Pre-Order
Hippies Vs Ghosts Wazo Expected 26th January 7" from Hippies Vs Ghosts the brainchild of Welch psych-krautrock artist Owain Ginsberg ‘Wazo’ captures the very essence of Hippies Vs Ghosts; Krautrock indebted psychedelia of epic proportions. Propelled onward by a chugging bass and persistent percussives, it hurtles along at breakneck speed with menacing intent, bending and contorting through a sea of swirling noise and scorching riffs. Urgent, catchy, and oh so irresistible! B-side companion ‘Hibou Calling’ is a much more tempered affair. A gentle acoustic strum, soft percussion and hushed repeated vocals fuse with some floaty sonic sounding atmospherics to soothe the soul and whisk one’s mind away to a lofty transcendental plain.

The Parade Connector New 7" from new wave indie duo The ParadeFronted by Matt Prichard and Jemimah Dean, the two possess a compelling chemistry akin to a rock ‘n’ roll Bonnie and Clyde. A bohemian vagabond, Prichard is an exceptional poet, musician and performer, fusing the eloquent seediness of Serge Gainsbourg, the passionate lyricism of Jacques Brel, and the glam Britannia of David Bowie circa Hunky Dory. Dean is Prichard’s perfect partner-in-crime. Her honey-coated voice drips with the sexual tension of Stevie Nicks, coupled with the spikiness of Lydia Lunch and the unabashed femininity of Hope Sandoval, prowling a corner of the stage barefooted, both percussionist and sexual protagonist. Too Pure 7"
Dracula Legs Heartburn Destination / Cold Licks Expected 14th April The latest in the Too Pure singles Club comes from garage rockers Dracula Legs. Based in London, this quintet are men who hail from all walks of life - the great lakes of Canada, the mountains of Wales, the Black Country, even Essex. There’s probably a generic term to pigeonhole their "sound" – Alt-country? Heavy-country? Plain ol' country? – but really who cares when they’re this good? Too Pure 7"
Spectres The Sky Of All Places Expected 20th January Too Pure kick off their Singles Club with Bristol's Spectres. Fans of ..Trail Of Dead you'll be into this! The first track opens with motorik drums, bringing to mind Can via The Horrors, accompanied by a light drizzle of fuzz. Dreamy vocals float around amidst the distorted guitars. The duel guitars compliment each other perfectly, one soaring through the clouds, the other grinding through the dirt. It all builds to an energetic display of balls to the wall noise rock, custom built to get crowds flailing and collapsing into each other. this strange bunch are happy ploughing the furrow into the depths of their own hell, inviting you to join them in the abyss. This 7" features two brand new tracks that may or may not hint as to what is to expect from their forthcoming debut album early next year, either way they serve their purpose dragging you into a pit of their noise and horror ..

Alex Dingley Cat's Eyes / Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea Expected 10th December The final release for 2012 as part of the Too Pure Singles Club. Hailing from South Wales, Alex Dingley makes music firmly rooted in honesty and work in the belief that musical technique should not compromise melody, and that the song is the most important thing, allowing the parts of the songs to naturally gravitate to one another and then cementing this connection with the lyrics... ‘Cats Eyes’ is a euphoric gem of a track, incorporating rich instrumentation augmented by boy / girl singalong vocals, electronics and a free spirited folk stomp that’s difficult to resist. ‘Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea’ is another rampant track but more in tune with proponents of early nineties Lo-Fi Americana - feelgood all the way, complete with retro synths and hand claps.
